Henry Brant performs Homeless People at Other Minds 4, 1997


Published November 11, 1997


American composer Henry Brant, father of 20th Century "spatial" music, conducts and performs the world premiere of a new work titled "Homeless People" at the Other Minds Music Festival in 1997 at San Francisco's Cowell Theater.

For this premiere, Brant performs with the San Francisco-based Onyx Quartet with Brant playing directly on the strings of a piano with mallets.

"As the 20th Century concludes, there is scarcely anyone on the planet who is not in some significant way a member of the universal human species, "Homeless People." As such, this mulit-layered phenomenon offers an over-powering subject for musical treatment. The venue of spatial chamber music seems especially appropriate. The four quartet-players are stationed in the corners of the hall; the piano, alone onstage, played directly on the strings, and the accordian have no communication with the quartet or with each other."
